Cho said Seoul plans to provide a 2.3 billion USD mid- to long-term aid package to Ukraine starting this year and offer 12 million USD for rehabilitation of wounded Ukrainian soldiers through a NATO trust fund for assistance to Ukraine.

Austrian Prime Minister Karl Nehammer announced on Thursday that Vienna has pledged to use 2.2 million USD from the Foreign Disaster Relief Fund to provide humanitarian aid to Ukraine.

Previously, Prime Minister Nehammer expressed opposition to the European Commission's proposal to allocate profits from Russian assets frozen in the "Old Continent" to military aid to Ukraine, saying that Vienna supports the use of these funds to rebuild Ukraine but opposes using them to provide military support to Kiev.
